Re: Questions on sole flattening *PIC*

Steve D, CT
I got 4 planes in a tool lot that I bid on because I saw one was a 604. Others were an ogee frog #4, a cracked #3, a horrible 5-1/4 and some sliding bevels. The #4 was pretty flat starting out but the Bedrock was worn at the ends. To keep from sanding the ends more I worked the middle by hanging off the paper. I checked straightness often and marked the high to concentrate on next round.

This is a previously restored 604C that this one will replace.

First passes to show the high spots.

A few minutes later

Some more

Marked highs. The circles are around the previous high and the others are the new high.

A little at a time to stay out of trouble

604 and 4
